The amount of web surfers that purposely eliminate all JS is likely very small. Then there’s people like me that use NoScript but can enable a page easily. And once in a decade a script might still get lost in transition. All together a few percent at max (and getting smaller while mobile usage is still growing), for whom you could provide a simple alternative page using <noscript> tags, both for HTML and CSS. Hinting to them that the page looks great with scripting enabled. I suppose the bigger question is if you can ignore the inner purist enough to go with an all JS framework. ;-)
